Step 2: 3D Printing

3D Printing
After the digital model is created, we will print it out. 

Step 3: Silicon Rubber Molding

Since this sculpture is to be made with the lost wax casting technique, our next step is making a silicon rubber mold and wax work from the printed model.

Step 4: Bronze Casting Sculpture

Bronze Casting Sculpture
Our next step is using the rubber and wax model for bronze casting.
Our craftsman will carefully cast bronze, do chasing and polishing on the bronze casting sculpture.

What is a Fab Lab ?

The fab lab (short for “fabrication laboratory”) was developed at MIT in the early 2000s. It is a small-scale workshop offering public access to computer-assisted design and production tools, enabling such operations as milling, laser cutting and 3D printing. The emergence of fab labs is associated with the “maker” movement, a digital extension of the radical DIY culture that emerged in the 1960s, which combines practical, even craft skills with the use of digital tools. Through the fab labs, 3D printing has become the emblem of the new sharing economy.
